Marcin Partyka, 39, appeared at Aberdeen Sheriff Court having previously pled guilty to a number of matters.
He admitted being in charge of a vehicle on Wellington Road, Aberdeen, around 6.20pm on January 30, 2018, with 267 milligrammes of alcohol in 100ml of blood.
The legal limit is 50 milligrammes.
And Partyka also admitted driving a car on Bedford Avenue, Aberdeen, Elmbank Terrace, Aberdeen, and roads in between, just hours later at 12.30am with 226mlg in 100ml of blood.
He further admitted possession of a knife and ecstasy on Adelphi Lane in Aberdeen on October 26 2018.
Defence agent Stuart Beveridge said: “It’s accepted he’s had a fairly long-standing difficulty with alcohol.
“That spiralled out of control basically due to the breakdown of his relationship with his wife and family.”
